Encircled by forested mountains and separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a narrow sandbank, the Blue Lagoon at Oludeniz is a protected nature reserve famed for its sparkling turquoise waters and wild, unspoiled scenery.
Just down the coast from Fethiye, Oludeniz is a popular seaside resort, famous for its long sand and shingle beaches and the mesmerising Blue Lagoon.
Protected from over-development thanks to its national park status, the Blue Lagoon is one of the natural wonders of the Turkish Riviera, and an inviting and easily accessible excursion to enjoy during your luxury yacht charter along Turkey's beautiful Mediterranean coastline.
Stretching between the lagoon and the sea, the sandbank known as Kumburnu Beach is one of the most striking coastal images in Turkey and a great place to relax on a lounger or enjoy a variety of watersports. The water on the lagoon side of the beach is very shallow, making it ideal for young families.
Oludeniz, and especially the Blue Lagoon, is said to be one of the best places in the world for paragliding, due to the stable weather conditions, the height of the surrounding mountains and the spectacular scenery.

On the northern shore of the lagoon, there is a handful of boutique hotels with private beaches backed by pine forests, if you're looking for somewhere to unwind on a perfectly-placed lounger, such as Sugar Beach Club and the smaller Seahorse Beach Club.
There are also some simple restaurants and bars where you can stop for a light lunch during your visit to the lagoon, or enjoy a chilled cocktail as you take in the glorious views.
The water in the Blue Lagoon is calm, shallow, and clear, perfect for enjoying a relaxing swim or snorkelling, while canoes and paddle-boats are available for hire if you want to explore the further reaches of the lagoon.
